this the cornerstone of working something out. that sounds good. then nancy pelosi, the house minority leader, saying that this has to be about cuts. this has to be about revenue. this has to be about growth and that she is confident a solution is in sight. sounds good, too. and then the house minority leader or rather the minority leader mitch mcconnell also suggesting that this was a constructive meeting and that we are prepared to put revenue on the table. they just emerged from the meeting. looked like they were going right back in. maybe they were going to have lunch. i don't know. they sure deserve it if they're able to come to rhetoric like that any any case. take to you break for a moment and hopefully i can scramble up wolf blitzer. given the fact we're so busy with breaking news he is probably busy as well.

stories yesterday is nancy pelosi, the top democrat in the house plans to stick around in her job as minority leader. how surprising was that news yesterday? caller: the sense upon reporters is that was what we expected. i think there was some questions both in 2010 when democrats lost control of the house. then again this year when democrats fell short of their initial goal of regaining control of the house whether leader nancy pelosi would stick around. i think she was signaling quietly by not letting people know she was staying. i think it was clear she wanted to first talk about and give the news to democrats behind closed doors. host: what does it indicate in terms of the direction of congressional democrats? what can we read from this move? caller: that the pelosi doctrine or the leadership she has had over 10 years, she was very instrumental in a lot of passing the legislation that the obama administration passed during its first term. health care, dodd-frank, a lot of these pieces of legislation. we are going to continue to see her in her role as minority leader and workin
squishy. listen to the democratic leader of the house nancy pelosi. >> we're open to a grand bargain and however we get to the place where we can have significant deficit reduction now the president campaigned on the 250. american people support that. i think that's where a good deal of leverage is. >> in other words the democrats will settle for just taxes going up and people making more than a million dollars. $1 million. that will be the final deal. president obama, a lot of folks in washington as we prepare for a hearing this morning on benghazi and general petraeus who is going to be testifying this morning a lot of people still talking about the dust up between republicans and the obama administration over susan rice. she went out on the sunday talk shows and got some of the information wrong about what happened in benghazi. president obama on wednesday strongly defended her in the wake of attacks from senators john mccain and lindsey graham. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go aft

reid and senator minority leader mitch mcconnell and nancy pelosi not surprising here. what's the expectation? >> well, you know, we'll see. publicly, suzanne, there has been a much more consillatory tone that we've seen since the election, whether it's from the president or the house speaker john boehner, but i can tell you in talking to sources privately on both sides of the aisle, they admit that it's all about positioning and posturing to make sure at the end of the day if we do go off the fiscal cliff that they're not blamed for it. they're the ones who looked reasonable, not unreasonable, and they're preparing for the other side to blame them for the opposite, if that makes sense. that's a lot of what you are saying in public. the reality is that neither side has a really clear machine date or clear vote and no one wants to look at the end of the day like they never gave compromise a chance. listen to republican bob corker, though, because there does seem to be a little bit of a crack on the republican side on whether or not it's okay to raise some taxes. >> i think th

right now coming from anyone in all of this. here he read and nancy pelosi really did not mention entitlement at all. rich o'connell highlighted the fact that his conference in the senate believes that this country does not have a taxing problem, it has a spending problem. there are still two very different beliefs on how to address this problem as they move forward. staff will continue working as the president is out of the country. he goes to a show tomorrow. telegraphs and republicans will be back here after the thanksgiving recess. lori: thank you. melissa: will a deal actually get done. joining us now is juan williams. thank you for joining us. what is your pet on this? what do you think that i think there is a lot of political pressure on both sides right now. remember, from the democratic perspective, they think they need a deal and president obama thinks he has a legacy that he has to protect right now. have watched as democrats have picked up seats in the senate and the house and president obama has been reelected. they do not want to be seen as obstacles to a deal that p
but nancy pelosi saying we have to have cuts. >> about as good as you can expect at an hour or two. >> especially talking about the possibility of getting this done, not at the very last minute but with some room to spare. i don't know what getting it done but it means having all of the elements of a deal completed or whether it means a mechanism or getting it done in the early part of next year but i think every sign that we just got out of the meeting was positive. >> let's bring in senator kent conrad of north dakota. had a busy day already. thank you for being with us. >> you bet. >> i'm sure you were able to hear senator reid say we won't wait until the last day of december, working through the thanksgiving recess. do you agree with john that this was a good first step? >> extremely positive. i'm even more encouraged. you know, i felt all along there's a good chance to arrive at a framework agreement in this lame duck session, lay out the size of the package, how it would be distributed to how much to cut in spending and raise in revenue. lay all that out before the end of the

[laughter] i would give him an irish handshake. and, you know, it's incredible, it's incredible what george bush president bush's name is in the history book. his name in the -- greatest health crisis in 600 years. both sides working. bill clinton was here, -- i would get up and make a speech. explaining stuff. he's more of a rock star than i'll are ever be. i just want to thank bono.

connell and house speaker john boehner and nancy pelosi. they're all going to try to make some progress in coming to an agreement in how to increase revenue and decrease spending before the tax cuts expire for everyone and pre-determined spending cuts kick in automatically. the president said he's willing to compromise but not if it means protecting the top 2% from paying their fair share.
